Mistakes do happen in the operating room, and if you have become a victim, you should discuss your legal options with a Cleveland, OH attorneywho can explain many examples of medical malpractice and help you to determine if, indeed, you were the victim of a surgical error.
When you or your child is rolled into an operating room, you expect that medical problems will be corrected, not made worse because of your medical team’s negligence. As Cleveland medical malpractice attorneys will explain, surgical errors can lead to serious injuries or the loss of a loved one.
Surgical errors could be the result of:
• inadequate screening before surgery;
• poor patient monitoring;
• miscommunication among your medical team;
• failure to respond to changes in vital signs (blood pressure, heart rate); and
• equipment malfunction, which can lead to your heart or lungs stopping, stroke, death, or paralysis.
When you have become a victim, either directly or through the loss of a family member, a Cleveland, OH attorney may be able to help you seek medical malpractice settlements.
